high point of service?

In reply to air in cold water pipes by paul on July 15th, 1999 03:58 PM [Go to top of thread]

My house sometimes gets small amounts of air in the lines because I am located at a high point in the water companies service. In most areas like mine, the water company will not do anything to correct this. If it is a major problem and you thing can cause damage to your equipment (plumming) you may have to take legal action.

If you are not at a high point of service, then your pipes are allowing air in somehow. However, we are only guessing without more information such as:
* Public water or well water?
* House located at top of hill, in valley, or on level area?
* Do any of your neighbors experience this?
* Do you have a water pressure regulator installed?
* Do you have a water softener?
* How much air over what amount of time?

Please respond, joe

PS: hey JJ, is that better?
